Email registration for password reset: As soon as you start at Douglas, make sure the email address registered in your network profile is the one you want to use for password reset.

Using Office 365 & Douglas email after graduation

Once you’ve completed your studies, the system will email you a request to move all the files you’d like to keep from OneDrive to your personal storage, or purchase a license before your access expires. You’ll receive a 30-day notice prior to the expiry date. All files left on the Office 365 system after that period will be deleted permanently.
